In brief: Fibromyalagia/sleep
Fibromyalagia can cause chronic pain and aches which can prevent rejuvenating sleep.
New studies show that hormone replacement can help-especially Progesterone for women. Other things to try are melatonin, calm's forte and sleep time teas with valerian root. Try taking baths with epsom salt and baking soda helps to relax muscles.

In brief: Melatonin
Both melatonin and valerian root are helpful sleep aids.
They are natural and have few side effects. Never exceed more than the recommended dose without the advise of your doctor. However, if a dosage range is given, you can safely raise the dose (number of pills) until you either wake up sleepy or with a headache.

In brief: C. indica
? how get good night sleep w.
fibromyalgia (FM). Many patients have reported sleep inducing benefits of Cannabis indica taken 30 minutes prior. Seems to relax, reduce pain, & allay anxiety & rumination. No morning hangover & sleep is relatively bereft of awakenings. Many report preference even though have received Ambien (zolpidem). A convenient preparation is a glycerine tincture taken sublingual.
